Deadline.com is reporting that former WWE star Dave Bautista (Batista) has signed on to star in the film “Bus 657” starring Robert De Niro, Kate Bosworth, Jeffrey Dean Morgan and former MMA fighter turned actor Gina Carono.

“The pic, formerly titled Bus 757, centers on a father (Morgan) without the means to pay for his daughter’s medical treatment. As a last resort, he partners with a greedy co-worker (Bautista) to rob a casino and the two hijack a bus full of hostages and things go awry. De Niro will play Frank “The Pope”, owner of the casino, and Bosworth plays his estranged daughter. Carano is a policewoman in pursuit of the hijacked bus.”
